Indie Reads – September 2016

So, here’s a writing prompt for you; do as you wish – short story, flash fiction, poem, what have you. There is no deadline or word count restriction. Just write. (Comments are closed – write on your own.)

This week’s word: DISPARAGE

Use it however you’d like: as the title, in a sentence, or as inspiration. Ready, set, write!
